Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, royal couple in the United Kingdom, have been following coronavirus guidelines and staying safe during the pandemic. Now that they are back with their baby in Canada, the couple has had some kind words to support during this devastating pandemic.

The couple posted to their instagram giving resources for mental health support, captioning their post, “With everything going on, it’s a lot to take in, many of us may feel confused. Or alone, or anxious or scared…and in isolation, some of us may just feel bored, or that you don’t know what to do with yourself without your normal routine. It’s perfectly normal to be feeling any of these things.” They assure that not everything has to be lonely, even while following the COVID guidelines.

The Sussexs have also offered many tips as well to battle through the virus. “If you feel alone, overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious, you can text one of these lines and talk it through — If you are in an abusive relationship and now find yourself in isolation with your abuser, these counselors are there for you. You do not need to suffer in silence.”

The post ends in, “If there is someone you know and are worried about,” the caption concludes, “your text may be the thing that saves their life.”
